Over Roofing

SCS Roofing Industrial RoofingOver-Roofing can be applied to most types of pitched and flat roofs. The advantage of over roofing is that the original roof remains in place to provide weather protection, whilst a proprietary grid system is installed to support the new profiled steel sheeting.

Modern over sheeting solutions take less time to fit than a new roof. They give you all the benefits of a new roof at a greatly reduced cost and with less disruption to the client.

Over roofing also provides an ideal opportunity to incorporate additional insulation, thereby reducing heat loss and solar gain through the roof. We recommend that any existing rooflights are replaced prior to the over-sheeting being fitted.

Over Roofing Projects


During September 2018 we carried out an over-roofing to a factory/warehouse roof in Worthing, West Sussex.

The 4 no. old roof vents were removed and replaced with translucent rooflights to let additional natural light into the factory.

New single skin plastisol coated steel sheeting was fixed onto new spacer purlins that were fitted over the old roof.

New 200mm thickness fibreglass insulation was laid between the 2 no. roofs to help regulate the temperature within the building.

The roof was finished off with new purpose manufactured contrasting coloured flashings.

The gutters were a major problem and so as they adjoined next doors building we blocked them off at the end of our clients section. Extended the roof sheets outside the building and fitted new half round PVC gutters to the outside. In addition new down-pipes were fitted which discharged the water into the existing drains.
